Roger Williams Park

Today we headed out to Roger Williams Park (which I never visited when I actually lived in Providence) and hit up their Botanical Center. I talked to one of the URI Master Gardners for a minute or two and she said they have been working hard to clean things up and take better care of it. The master gardners also made a bunch of ferry houses that were spread out around the garden. If I still lived in the area I think I’d have to go frequently and bring some knitting or spinning and sit around the plants while I worked.

The biggest greenhouse is quite tall, there were several others off to the right.

The big greenhouse is filled with lots of tall palms.

We enjoyed the pattern on the cut steam.

The outside gardens were mostly asleep, but some trees are starting to wake up.
